That ovens really neat.... why spoil the look of the brick with a steel chimney
couple of rows of brick to bring up what you have built to get the smoke above the dome....remember the most smoke you get is the first bit of flash up.....
Just a thought....

Looks awesome Huhness - I love your explanations of the troubleshooting along the way. It looks like no-one gets a perfect one out-of-the-box. Your good clear explanations are appreciated.

Nice build, mate! I also came across innumerable problems building my dome, went backwards and forwards in various places, but even though still unfinished (needs door) it makes nice bread, pizzas, lamb casseroles - you name it.

Noobs might want to download my Picasa album (232 snaps, with detailed info) to avoid making mistakes similar to mine. It lives at picasaweb.google.com/Brasa500C/Forno_del_gallo

Cheers,

LMH

Hey Huhness
NICE JOB!!! I Think your's is one of the best on this forum!
You do really make it look simple though. Would you mind telling me the diameter, how much the whole thing costed, and then how much concrete you used? I am going to build a brick oven over the summer, and the calculations are hard. Would really appreciate it, Thanks.

Jascob:

Asking an Australian for costing information will not get you much data for United States build. Fire bricks are particularly expensive down under.

It absolutely looks great. Is that just red-oxide and portland for the render? I want that same kind of render. Can you give me more details? thanks

Thanks again everyone for the kind words!

@Jascob: Thanks! I know the costs won't mean much for you (everything is also MUCh cheaper over your way!) but here are the totals for materials.

Slab: 1900x1900x100 or so.. haha (0.5m/cu of concrete)
Stand: about 60 concrete blocks 5 half blocks. Plus 20x20kg bags of ready mix concrete to fill every 2nd core
Hearth: 35x20kg bags 1800x1800 100/70mm depth (the slab was uneven this was corrected with my hearth which was DEAD ON! which is where it counts )

I bought a kit from field furnace which had the floor tiles, insulated bricks for the floor, fire bricks, insulation blanket for the dome and all the bricks for the arch and door.

place chicken wire on the dome and use 3x20kg bags of acrylic render and score the surface. Then with 1 bag add you coloured oxide and create the desired effect ontop.

@lwood: yes that is coloured oxide LOTS OF IT! and acrylic render. I found the render in the bathroom section at bunnings. made by bostic.

I should take some pictures of the final product, I have a sanstone top and just need to go over the base with some colour.
